... page 117 of II defines GPP (Verhoshansky's definition) as "conditioning exercises designed to enhance an athlete's general, non-specific work capacity".
So, from my simplistic layman perspective, work capacity is an ability which we want to improve, and one way to improve it is through GPP. GPP is a term that refers to actual exercises, routines, etc., ... whereas Work Capacity refers to a state of physical ability.
One term (Work Capacity) refers to a level of physical capability ... the other term (GPP) refers to a type of set of conditioning exercises that will impact Work Capacity.
Now I can sleep ...

As for Work Capacity, I thought it was the ability to perform more work over longer periods of time.
Now I'm a little thick so be patient with me. Are the definitions provided here (especially the one posted by Ross) at odss with mine?
